Current Exhibits

Special Display Case Exhibit 

March – April 2020

Anita Evans

I was born and raised in Brockville, Ontario. I moved back here about ten years ago. I studied art at York University in Toronto. When I graduated I showed regularly at Celebration of Arts in Uxbridge. I was also in charge of their children’s mural.

When I joined Women’s Institute, I did banners, displays and posters. I also placed second in the Women’s Institute Plate Competition.

After a break from doing art, I began to do pictures in pencil crayon. I copy pictures from craft magazines and home decor books. I like pictures that have intersecting compositions and pleasing colours.

Anita’s artwork is also on exhibit in the Non-fiction Room gallery.
